Rioter Harold sends us this image and this simple warning…
The chuggers have returned.
As someone who buys lunch in the city every day I can tell you that they never left, they’re usually just in Garema place near Games Capital instead of out here on the city walk.
Still worth noting, and worth getting ready for.
Prepare your [...]
